How to set the background color for each individual task by databinding a property on a custom GanttTask class.


To achieve the desired result, you need to bind the Color property through the OriginalEvent property of the EventProxy class which is the DataContext of the EventContainer.

<telerik:ColorToBrushConverter x:Key="ColorToBrushConverter" /> 
<Style TargetType="telerik:EventContainer"> 
    <Setter Property="Background" Value="{Binding OriginalEvent.Color, Converter={StaticResource ColorToBrushConverter}}" />
